A bad case of the itis

That was Nathan’s diagnosis today….

…otitis (ear infection)

Poor guy. He threw up this morning but fortunately hasn’t thrown up since. He also hasn’t really eaten anything that he COULD throw up. All those hard-earned calories…slipping away.

He’s on augmentin for all of the itis’es. We hope the antibiotics will do the trick.

I also pointed out to the doctor that he’s been sick constantly for the last 3 months. She realized it too so she wrote orders for a whole bunch of tests. She is going to focus on figuring out what’s up with his immune system, to see if he needs IVIG or something to boost his immunity.

Even through all this, he continues to be happy and complains very little. My poor little man. So gentle, so sweet, so strong.
